A Word About Our March Semester 2021 Khoreographies

We have an exciting line-up for this semester's choreographies!

  • Dancing Bear -- This is another recent, unreleased composition by Georges Lammam (and Naser Musa) composed specifically for dance in "mejance" style.
  • Ya Dale Ya Rouhi -- Expect a simple, molasses-fueled, romantic dance to this 2012 hit by Lebanese superstar Wael Kfoury.
  • Universal Mind Control -- Jessica brings you this fusion of belly dance and hip hop moves.
  • Shape of You -- Laura has a classy and sassy dance in store for you, utilizing the most mesmerizing of props: LED fan veils.
  • Bellyfit -- Valori has a Saturday class to enjoy this fabulous fusion of fitness and dance.  THIS CLASS IS NOT A CHOREOGRAPHY CLASS - but it IS a new addition to Karavan and the 2020-2021 School Year. 

We will be holding all of our classes virtually, will be having limited live studio rotation throughout the semester, AND we will be opening participation in GBDAC2021 (Karavan's 25th Anniversary Show) to anyone who learns the dances in either format.

Let's dance,

-Karen

Dancing Bear

Mondays, 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm with Karen

This is another recent, unreleased composition by Georges Lammam (and Naser Musa) composed specifically for dance in "mejance" style.


The piece has a spirited, veil-demanding introduction, rhythm changes, rotating instrument focus, and (of course) a violin taksim.   Cindy will be choreographing the veil opening, Karen the middle, and both co-choreographing the end.

Dancing Bear

Ya Dale Ya Rouhi

Thursdays, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm with Karen

Expect a simple, molasses-fueled, romantic dance to this 2012 hit by Lebanese superstar Wael Kfoury.

If you've been in a class lately, you've heard this song in the warm-up. Georges Lammam introduced it to me and - as with Dancing Bear - the plan is to perform this to LIVE MUSIC at GBDAC2021.

Level: 2-3 - Beginner / Intermediate

Universal Mind Control

Wednesdays, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm with Jessica

This choreography is a fusion of belly dance and hip hop moves.

Busting a move with the roger rabbit, the humpty dance and more. We will hair flip, shimmy and line dance to one of my favorite songs.

Level: 4.5 - Advanced

Shape of You

Thursdays, 7:45 pm - 8:45 pm with Laura

A classy and sassy dance!  For this choreography, we will be utilizing the most mesmerizing of props:  LED fan veils.

Picture beautiful, flowing, multi-colored silk with bright, radiant lights. We will be dancing to an instrumental oud cover of the popular Ed Sheeran song "Shape of You". Standard van veil movements will be implemented with a few surprises incorporated.

Hop on board for this class ASAP as space will be limited.

Purchase of fan veils not required, but a group costume will run approx $80.

Classes start on March 11th.

Level: 3.0 - Intermediate

Bellyfit

Saturdays, 9:30 am - 10:30 am with Valori

Bellyfit is a fabulous fusion of fitness and dance. THIS CLASS IS NOT A CHOREOGRAPHY CLASS - but it IS a new addition to Karavan and the 2020-2021 School Year. 

In the first half of the class, burn mega calories with fun and sexy cardio moves inspired by Belly Dance, Bollywood, Bhangra, African Dance and more.
